Our third visit and we were treated so well! The fall salad special was incredible! The wine list and menu items always delicious. Our server, Greg, was so friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoy coming and sitting outside on the terrace. Very romantic and Covid-safe. A true gem in La Jolla village.

This was our very first visit to NINE~TEN. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening dining experience. Service was friendly and attentive without being too pushy. From the caesar salad, sourdough bread, throughout the main courses, I had the Rack of Lamb which was excellent, and the deserts and wine and cocktails, all delightful! Ambiance extremely pleasant, we will be back soon.

I had not been to Nine Ten in a while and was so happy they had plenty of outdoor seating in the hotel courtyard and there were ocean views. The restaurant bakes it's own bread and it is worth ordering. Exceptional wine list. The food was prepared to perfection. We had salmon and it had the most delicious tasting little potato rounds with it. . We were too full for desert, but looking at the menu, I wished I had saved a little more room. Service was out of this world Attentive, knowledgeable and always there if you needed something, Don't miss this LJ village gem and also check out the beautiful hotel lobby and wood paneled elevator. A real treat!

This was a wonderful spot with a great, attentive staff. The pork belly, duck, and rack of lamb were all amazing and I'd highly recommend them. Definitely a must try in La Jolla. Parking can be found just on the side street or the valet is a cheap option.

We planned dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday and were greeted with a lovely card signed by the staff. I had requested a pretty view and they did not disappoint.

Our dishes were mixed.. the salmon tartare and the cacio e pepe were outstanding. The bread and little gems salad were very good. Our only disappointments were the chocolate cake and brioche donuts we ordered for dessert, neither of which was special.

Overall we had a wonderful experience and would recommend it.

We hadn't booked 910 in a while and chose it for my Halloween birthday on Sunday, Oct. 31. Perhaps the day explains the the utterly substandard food preparation. I ordered the halibut special and it arrived beautifully presented by completely inedible. The halibut portion was minuscule, clearly past its use by date and grossly overcooked. I sent it back. The server was gracious and offered the salmon. It arrived almost raw, and was accompanied with the worst sauce, tart and oily, that I have ever had. It was also inedible and was sent back. I have never done this before. What saved the evening from a complete disaster was the perfectly prepared duck that my wife ordered.
I doubt we'll be coming back anytime soon.

Nine-Ten is - by far - our favorite restaurant in San Diego. We had a great dinner there on Saturday night when we took a few friends out to dinner. The service was wonderful, it was clear who our waiter was but I was impressed at how the staff really functioned as a team. Also, great wine recommendations! Delicious. Fabulous.

We always love coming here, NINE-TEN is in our top 5 SD restaurants. This time we got the gnocchi with black truffles, one of the specials, so delicious and decadent! Still thinking about it today! The only reason I gave less stars for value was the hefty price of the dish although I’d do it again in a minute, so worth it !
Our server also recommended a red wine blend that was unique and very good with the salmon, a blend of red and white wine.

We had Saturday brunch. We had the swordfish tacos and the omelette. Both were delicious. We bought a doughnut and scone to take back to the hotel room for later. They were amazing!!
When we return to La Jolla we will definitely be back.

The tastes of our ribeye and jerk chicken were tantalizing. The patio setting was fabulous. The restaurant is in an old hotel with fine early 1900s craftsmanship wonderfully preserved. We shared a salad that was tastebud excitement. From the butternut squash spears to the radicchio and prosciutto pieces. We didn't have bread to 'clean' the plate or we would've. The 1/2 baked cake and caramel was delicious but too mushy and the small ice cream scoop too frozen. That said it was a great dining experience on a perfect La Jolla night.

they were accomodating and seated us earlier. the environment is very attractive. the service was slow. My husband's pasta dishes were great. My scallops were not good. The champagne bottle came at room temperature and did not cool off in time. The vegetable salad was amazing.

The pasta and mushroom was really good by any standard. The mushrooms were fragrant and strong. The scallops were also very good the turnip purée was rich and seemed to have a tiny bit of vanilla? Excellent. Lived in Bavaria 3 hrs from Italy for years. 910 is a hit!

This is a great spot for a celebratory dinner.! The menu is creative and delicious. Entrées are generously sized— for example the duck was two full breast halves, not just a few slices. A special oyster appetizer was inventive, and prepared with a light hand to show off the delicate briny flavor. Everything was perfectly prepared. Wine list is extensive, but pricey— though there are a few quite nice wines at accessible price points. Service is really excellent and ambience on outside patio delightful. Perfect venue for a special night.

My friend and I both enjoyed our choices a LOT...exquisite hamachi sashimi and a fried chicken sandwich. Wait staff extremely solicitous and patient--we were there three hours! Wine selections, vis a vis Sauv. Blanc could be better: a New Zealand choice included?
